Archiving Logs

Use

You can archive logs that you no longer need, but which must still be retained in an accessible form. The logs are written in archive files and then deleted from the system in a background process. For more information, see Archive Administration (transaction SARA). The relevant object name is ECATT_LOG.

You set the archive flag in the Archive field of the log attributes. Only logs which have this flag (X), and whose expiry date is not later than the current system date, are archived.
